Minimize ping by connecting to faster servers near you
Ping Heatmap and Geo-Filter
Are you sure you're accessing the best server every time? Quickplay usually puts you in the first open server available, but often that connection can be less than desirable. You'll always connect to the lowest-ping servers available with these powerful features working together.
Ping Heatmap: View and analyze ping for servers from your preferred games, create a ping schedule for them, and see servers’ historical data to better strategize your picks.
Geo-Filter: Dramatically reduce lag by putting servers under your control. Choose servers based on distance and ping rate in Geo-Filter or Geo-Fencing mode. Save the best-performing servers and block undesirable ones.
Block ads at the router level
NETGEAR Game Booster offers the revolutionary ability to control ads and web tracking at the router level when enjoying online content.
Adblocker: Automatically block all ads and web tracking on websites and any connected (non-browser-based) device. Block specific content with personalized allow and block lists. Also prevent the tracking of your family’s online behavior.
